"live action" huh?


gotta love how the culture from you know where seeps into everywhere from every conceivable media.

Also, i love the fact that Jake Solomon is NOWHERE near this game's development team and their location.

Aah, the refreshing "everything sucks" internet attitude. This is really well done and sets a tone, I'd watch a TV series like that. Too bad the game probably won't hold up to this in terms of style and atmosphere.

9 times out of ten if a live action trailer is showed without actual game-play then the game sucks....

I think live action trailer are pretty much like announcement trailers. Just to visually say "The game is on its way"

.i see im not the only one who thinks this video is shit and has nothing to do with the game.
no gameplay!! how i suppose to form an opinion about unreleased game from this?
see boys and girls that is why i support piracy, because i am being treated like a dumb fuck by some game developers!!
p.s. after i finished xcom i loved it and paid for it.

hmmmm still skeptical about it, some gameplay footage would certainly help, but honestly this trailer is a waste because we know some the crap that have transpired during the development of this game and how it was affected by the release of the Enemy Unknown.

I bet this game fails, its been changed from an FPS game to a 3rd person shooter where you control a squad.

Just like that Evil Within dumb as hell live action trailer, this too was dumb as hell... seriously, why do they bother with this tripe, take the money it took to make this stupid trailer and hire someone to get the game done FASTER.

Great trailer. It reminded me of this rather brief TV series I remember seeing ages back called "Dark skies". I don't really play many FPS's but I remember Bioshock 2 was a game that handled pretty well. I think these guys are going to make a solid game for people who like first person shooters.

so it turns out to be that the whole trailer is a film being watched by the "Bureau"
great idea 
excited about the game, 2K Marin can't fail on this one (fingers crossed)

don't know what you guys are talking about. This is obviously a game about film editing.

Very slick. Have been following this one for a while and am still excited for it.

Riveting game play! Ride a bike, do some walking, and finish it off with some film editing. Oh, and don't show any game play footage in a video game trailer. This $hi+ has to stop. Show film footage of the movie, for a movie trailer. Show game play footage, for a video game trailer. It could be argued this was a cola commercial just as much as it was a video game trailer, because you don't see either one for the entire three minutes.

WORST TRAILER EVER!!!!!!! 

Letter to Video companies around the world.: If you want to put cool CGI, or have a funny video or a really cool live action movie that has nothing to do with the effing game, that is totally fine, BUT PLEASE INCLUDE IN GAME FOOTAGE!

Proof that this game is gonna suck, they can't even show any of the actual game itself. I predict a 5/10

These game companies sorely need to get into film making. Their game films are awesome and captivating but unfortunately when the game comes out, letdown..

I sure hope it's NOT like bioshock ! that game is mediocre at best and I don't play it because I think it's very silly , but , to each his own ! besides that this trailer is somewhat off the wall ? I sure don't get it ? I watched it four times and  and  and  and  etc. etc. etc .etc.

Well, at least it's not a CoD knockoff with aliens.

THIS video is mostly why games cost so much to make. These companies love to spend money on stupid shit that does nothing to further a games awareness. Putting out a completely USELESS trailer like this is just a huge waste of resources. This trailer looks like a total rip off of Destroy All Humans. It has nothing at all to do with the game. Pay me what you paid for this trailer and I could put together something 10x's more relevant right from my laptop.

Okay yes! Just don't Dead Island it up with the trailer being better than the game.

Love XCOM: EU, hope this is a worthy addition weather fps or turn-based.

@buffaloblitz85 that's funny because I recall huge game series' such as Halo and  Call of Duty using live action trailers.

@Uiltetwr At least those had action and were entertaining.

@moisan4 I agree they should have had at least a few seconds of game footage at the end. This "trailer" is just dumb and boring to the max. It does not tell a single flipping thing about the game.

@Vodoo I have to agree -- it's a stupid waste of resources, no doubt about it.

@Vodoo You've got a marketing degree, do you?

@X-7 @moisan4 your right it doesn't say a thing about the game... except for the main themes of government censorship and conspiracy, the approximate time period, and the fact that there is an alien invasion coming. But yes aside from the entire central theme of the game this showed nothing. *note sarcasm*

@Zloth2 @Vodoo Did you not read what he said? This does nothing for the game. If someone was randomly shown this they would have thought it was for a new movie about aliens and not a game. This gives the wrong impression and we saw what wrong impressions can do. (WIIU anybody?)
